Rabbi Sam Rotenberg
Rabbi Rotenberg joined the clergy team at Sinai Temple in 2018. He oversees the Teen Center, Atid Young Professionals, Social Action, Adult B’nai Mitzvah, and is the Rabbi to the Sinai Temple Religious School.
Rabbi Rotenberg has a deep love of studying and teaching Jewish text. Ordained from the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies in 2018, he is a proficient musician, a certified shochet, and eruv-enthusiast. He grew up in South Florida and spent most of his summers at Camp Ramah Darom in Georgia overseeing the music and tefillot programs. Rabbi Rotenberg continually seeks to integrate music into the study and practice of Judaism, and Jewish soul into communal musical expression.
Before beginning Rabbinical school, Rabbi Rotenberg produced Rock Shabbat, a real-time documentary of American Jewish music. He is married to Rabbi Keilah Lebell, and they have two (wonderful, loud, needy, imaginative, fun, energetic) kids, Meir and Della.
